USA and NATO in the Far East



The last Asian tour of US Defense Secretary Chuck Hagle (already the third in a row!) And Secretary of State John Kerry, who visited Japan and South Korea, demonstrated the US intention to strengthen its strategic position in the Far East.

In Japan, a new US military base will be created, which will house Global Hawk drones. The United States will send two squadrons of MV-22 Osprey to Japan, for the first time outside the United States, the P-8 naval patrol aircraft and the F-35B attack aircraft will be involved. The new US-Japan agreement also provides for the deployment of a US Marine Corps in Japan, the creation of a new "working cyber group" and the installation of a TPY-2 radar system to strengthen Japanese air defense systems ...

Global Hawk UAVs (range - 4400 km, height - 18 thousand meters) allow you to monitor both China and the Russian Far East, to receive operational information about movements of vehicles and military units stationed in the region, routes of Russian ships, and also to monitor for the pace of work at the Vostochny cosmodrome. To this should be added offensive cyber capabilities. Since 2008, the term “carpet bombing in cyberspace” has been used in the American military dictionary. UAVs can produce such "bombing" by the directional application of harmful interference, distortion of traffic on the air, etc.

Expands its capabilities in this region and NATO. At the headquarters of the alliance, they have already expressed their full support for American policy in the APR. According to NATO Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen, "The Alliance does not plan a long-term military presence in the Asia-Pacific region, but intends to fully strengthen cooperation there with its partners."

At the same time, in Brussels, they try to cover with such “cooperation” the maximum number of countries in the region, despite the contradictions between them.

The idea of ​​a “global NATO” is aimed at covering in perspective the area of ​​responsibility of the alliance for a huge arc from the Mediterranean through Afghanistan, Pakistan and India to the Far East and Southeast Asia. Already 2012, Singapore and Malaysia, not being members of the alliance, sent their military contingents to participate in NATO operations. NATO is also negotiating engagement with Brunei, Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Myanmar, the Philippines, Vietnam, and Thailand.

In 2012, several countries, referred to as NATO’s “global partners,” concluded individual partnership programs with the alliance. These are Mongolia, New Zealand, the Republic of Korea and Iraq. In the same year, a joint political declaration of NATO-Australia was signed, indicating, according to NATO estimates, “a determination to deepen cooperation in order to counter common threats.” And in April, 2013, a similar declaration was signed by NATO Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe.

All these initiatives have in mind primarily the crisis situations in the East China and South China Seas and have a pronounced anti-Chinese orientation. Marvin Ott, a CIA expert on East Asia and deputy head of the Senate Intelligence Committee, said that “effective measures to combat the US against Chinese ambitions imply the development of a rather sophisticated strategy” (1), which should consist of six points.

1. One of the central objectives of the US strategy is to avoid bilateral confrontation with China and create an “integrated” deterrence system in Southeast Asia, including a number of ASEAN countries, each of which defends its own interests.

2. Control of sea lines of communication are among the vital American interests.

3. The US strategy should be based on the UN Convention on the Law of the Sea (note that so far the United States has not signed this convention).

4. The ASEAN and ASEAN-plus mechanisms provide an additional and important element of “complexity” in the “containment of China” system.

5. An important element of the strategy in an overheated regional environment is the strengthening of the US Pacific Command (PACOM), given that for four decades since the end of the Vietnam War, the Pacific Command has not fought any hostilities.

6. A successful strategy should be built on close understanding with the governments of the region. This will require serious “strategic exchanges” at many levels with NATO partners in ASEAN (in the field of defense, foreign affairs, intelligence and analytical centers), as well as with other countries (Australia, India, etc.). The Pentagon has already initiated several "strategic dialogues" in the region (Vietnam, Malaysia, etc.) that require further development.

These calculations by an expert from the CIA allow a better understanding of US plans in the APR. The notorious "complexity" of US military construction in the Pacific can be achieved only at the cost of worsening relations with China of those countries that "peck" on Washington's strategic proposals. Meanwhile, the traditional strongholds of the United States (first of all, Japan and Australia) will continue to be strengthened, turning into the permanent presence zones of the Pentagon, the CIA and the NSA. Washington will not spare money for this.

      What kind of hysteria? The sluggish conflict in the Far East will be replenished with new technology, that's all.

      Leonid, if you are not aware of the "Poseidons" P-8 are sharpened to work with the US Navy's MQ-4C Triton, which will be tested only in about 2015, and after testing they will decide what to do with them.

      Global Hawk, after a purchase that will not be known whether or not, is planned to be used to control the disputed territories.

      Over the past months, China's patrol ships have been almost constantly located near the disputed islands and from time to time make brief demonstrative approaches to the coastal zone. In this regard, Japan is taking steps to strengthen the coast guard units operating in the area. In addition, according to some reports, the possibility of creating ballistic missiles with a range of 400-500 kilometers to prevent a possible invasion of Senkaku is being studied.

    In addition to systematization, I did not see anything new. This region is traditionally the USA’s attention zone. And in the face of strengthening of the PRC and the revival of the RF TF, they simply have nowhere to go. Such force cannot be stopped in one face.
    Now it’s already clear that in the next decade it will be hot there. The attention of world powers is moving there. The Middle East is no longer a priority. Geopolitically, it began to smell like blood again ... We are waiting for revolutions ...

        Americans are pragmatists, starting a major conflict in the Far East, they can provoke a large-scale nuclear conflict, because both China and Russia have quite powerful strategic nuclear forces, and the amers do not need it at all. So they will try to intimidate, project force, etc. but a large-scale "hot" war will not start. So it's too early to bury the world ...

      ??


      In late June, China’s largest copper producer signed a declaration of intent to explore investment opportunities in Mongolia’s largest mining project. The President of Mongolia offered him oil concessions during a state visit to China. In a month, zinc mining should begin at a new $ 50 million Chinese mine located in eastern Mongolia.

      In order to link these objects together, this summer, Chinese firms for Chinese money will begin to pave roads through the dense grass of the Mongolian steppes. In addition, during a visit to Mongolia last year, the Chinese president offered the country a loan of $ 300 million.

      Only fifteen years ago, the border between China and Mongolia, which was a satellite country of the Soviet Union, was almost closed. Today, Mongolia, like the other thirteen countries with which China has a land border, refers to it as the largest foreign investor and main trading partner.

    And specifically, the article is nothing new. The Russian Far East and China have always been under the scrutiny of the United States, especially since there are two Koreas and Japan nearby. You can write about this topic once a week when the Americans add another plane, ship, tank, marine in this region. It is necessary to strengthen the Pacific Fleet, build new ships, etc. and the like. Yes, everyone already knows this, except probably our government. hi

    Unfortunately, Russia does not perceive Russia in the Far East as a real force. We don’t have human, material or military resources there even in the necessary quantity, not to mention the sufficient one. Therefore, they all strive to share the skin of an unkilled bear. China buys silently everything that is bad. And what is good is also buying up. They have a lot of scammers.

    The United States is trying to curb or at least slow down the pace of Chinese influence in the APR and in the world as a whole. To do this, they are trying to "tear" some countries of the Asia-Pacific region from China. Americans are masters of intrigue and provocation. Here they have no equal. At the same time, even countries such as Vietnam are trying to reach their sphere of influence.

    The fact that the Americans intensified on D.V. most likely says that there will be new orders in the US military-industrial complex. That would keep the bucks afloat. As for the NATO allies in this region, well, this is not seriously simple. Amers need territories closer to China for their bases, in the likeness of how they overlaid the bases of the Russian Federation., And at the same time create tensions of a larger scale than there is now and, if possible, push the countries of the region to thoughtless actions (like Georgia)
